I have been a home owner for one week today. We have already put change into motion for the Trimble House. Contractors are being interviewed, cleaning and de-cluttering have commenced, and the materials for re-wiring the electricity have been purchased. It is interesting how quickly I want to get moving on a house that has been standing for over a century! I am definitely the impatient one in our relationship.
To commemorate the anniversary I bought our first pieces of furniture today! Actually, it was just a great find from Goodwill at a steal. The find: two Victorian chairs and a mahogany drum table. The chairs will be easy to recover, and I think they will fit well in the bay window. I don’t plan to buy a lot of furniture until later, these were just such a good price, and kind of perfect. I had to make an exception. One of the cleaning guys broke the piece of trim off the back of one of the chairs, but I have the piece, and it is very repairable.
